Here is the "advanced" way to do it: http://arcticdog.com/sonicwall-tz215-port-forwarding-quick-start/
If you take this approach, the directions leave out the fact that you need to create services (and a service group).

This article is the wizard-driven way: https://support.software.dell.com/kb/sw7027

Many services are predefined, but not all of them. For a few of them, you will need to create a custom service.

what's the sonicOS version of your TZ215? depending on the specific OS type, the rules might be different.

however by running its built-in wizard you should.be able to quickly setup port forwarding to internal server on given ports.

be aware that (1) the wizard way may always work but may also cause duplicate rules which is not optional in term of performance. (2) all rules will be having two parts in pair, one for NAT policy and the other is firewall rule.
